for having me. >> you say that should obama be reelected, president obama, he will turn medicare into medicaid. help us understand how we can issue a trade based on that. >> right, well, president obama's proposing to cap the rate of growth in medicare to inflation plus .5%. so if you're going to cap the rate of growth of medicare much below medical inflation, the only way to stay under that cap is basically sand down reimbursement rates. and look at the projections out five to ten years, they're looking at reimbursement rates crossing medicaid rates. doctors, hospitals are paid very little relative to what they're paid in the private market. that's what they're proposing to do under medicare. the only way they're going to be stay under their cap is to sand down reimbursement rates for doctors, hospitals, other providers. >> and the talking point tonight will likely be that vice president biden will say the republicans are going to gut medicare and medicaid. what do you say to that? what's the truth here? >> well, governor romney's proposing also to put medicare on a budget. the
